|We NEED Humor
In our day to day reality, we rarely have to face very dramatic situations.
However, from the moment we open our daily newspaper or tune in the radio or television to
a news broadcast, we are inundated with bad news.
It’s right in our faces in 3D – that’s death, disaster and destruction!
Whatever business we’re in, there’s probably more competition, stress and increased
demands to improve productivity, lower costs and do it all faster than ever before.
More families are falling apart or under heavy pressure from social, health and financial
problems now than in past years.
Humor will not fix everything for us but you might be surprised at the difference a little,
appropriate humor can make.
This book concentrates on smoothing social interaction and improving our social skills but
humor has power far more significant than you may realize.
Many people cannot help but let themselves be seriously affected by these day-to-day
pressures on us.
That’s why, according to the psychologists and all the other –ists that research this area,
comedy programs and live performances are among the most popular in every country
where comedy is allowed.
And you’ll find, if you haven’t already noticed, that anyone who can bring some lighthearted
fun to a group, whether it’s social or business, is on the fast track to popularity.
You CAN Tell a Joke Well
You may believe you are naturally funny and get an overwhelming response to any joke that
you punch out.
But, many otherwise happy people feel that they can’t tell a joke well or, at least, may never
get the response that they see their more extroverted friends get.
I’m the best example that I can offer to change that view. I’ve got the appearance of an
accountant that’s overdosed on vinegar but I’ve been getting laughs from friends, colleagues
and audiences for years. And I help a wide variety of people in my workshops to do the same.
Even if you were aiming to be a professional comedian – and that’s not the focus of this book
- there’s no statutory requirement that you must fit a particular - no ‘comedian’ stereotype –
your appearance, age, religion, race or gender will not be the deciding factors in the level of
success that you achieve. Just think of the wide variety of people that are currently putting
bread, and probably caviar (if they like fish), on their table by performing comedy.
Okay, your age might be a problem if you’re too young to get into the venues where you
want to work, or you’re not fit enough for the rigors of travel, performing and handling the
business side of your work – it isn’t all fun!
But even that doesn’t apply if your focus is to just use some jokes on social and appropriate
The single most important factor in successfully making humor part of your social profile is to
use humor that fits Y*O*U - carefully select the best and most appropriate material for the
occasion, the audience and your own personality.
Yes, we all have one - a personality - and it’s much easier and more effective to choose and
use only the jokes which fit us rather than try to change ourselves like a chameleon to put
over each joke that we want to use.
I don’t know what humor is and that question is really not worth pursuing - unless, perhaps,
you can get a large pile of Government grant money for the project. P.G. Wodehouse,
author of the classic Jeeves stories said, “I cannot define humour (he was British), but I think
I know it when I see it.”
Rather than analyze it to death, just concentrate on finding some jokes you think are funny
and appropriate, run through them in your mind and then use them. Like riding a motorbike
or doing a magic trick, telling jokes needs practice in real life situations.
